Elaine C.Geall



Born in 1976, Elaine Claire Geall is a professional artist and a resident of Bournemouth, Dorset, in the south of England.

Elaine's talents for drawing, painting and love for animals were evident from an early age and acquired both her National and Higher National Diplomas for Natural History Illustration at Bournemouth & Poole College of Art, Wallisdown, Dorset.

With the aid of optics, a camera and a sketchbook, Elaine's compositions are loosely compiled from her own experiences and knowledge of local fauna and flora, she encounters from her visits to favourite haunts in Dorset and Hampshire.

Regardless of the subject, Elaine is the main influenced and inspired by subtleties of light, colour and tonal details. Beit a commission or not, her objectives have always been the wanting to capture the likenesses and narratives as truthfully as she can and aims for a sense realism in her work, but not photo-realism.
